Two weekends ago my sewing buddy, Sandy, and I went to our annual quilting retreat. A great time in Amish country....the Inn at the Amish Door. This is a beautiful hotel and a great restaurant on the same premises. Our conference room/sewing space is on the third floor and a fun time was had by all. Women sewing, eating and laughing...what more could you ask for? We were given treats each day thanks to our leader, Mary, and her helpers. The bag behind my machine was in the first day goodie bag...along with cute little scissors and a handmade lanyard to hang them on.
I had made this little pincushion at home to take, thanks to Kim's tutorial. By the way, I now love Crate and Barrel!
These were our treat bags on Saturday, St. Patrick's Day.
Some shots of the room.
A few of the gals shopped for quilted fabric to make sewing machine pads with pockets for under their machines. Here are Sherry's, Mary's and Roberta's.
On of the gals that works a lot with wool made this for our head lady, Mary....simply gorgeous!
Some of the many projects in progress on Saturday.
More great pictures to come......btw, wish I was heading to another retreat this weekend....hmmm!
